Hey All, 

Trying to export this new ad I designed today... something weird is happening when I try to export it. The first image is what the ad is supposed to look like, the second image is how it keeps exporting.

What am I doing wrong? I've never had this issue before. I'm selecting "PDF for Print".

I don't know how you removed the background on the image. It would have been nice to have seen the AD file itself.

I downloaded the PDF, loaded the fonts used (and replaced the Fralin logo with fonts) and rebuilt the file. I removed the background of that image in an image editor, created a background and it exports fine.

I don't know if this ad is intended to print. If so you need to add bleed.

Where’s the image which should appear to the left of the Fralin logo? ears.gif

(Yeah, that’s the issue, of course. As you said, Mike, it would have been nice to have seen the AD file.)

I rasterized both the images and it worked. I was using masks to mask out the backgrounds. 

On the top image, I just used the selection brush to get the mask.

On the bottom image, I actually used a curve in AD and made a clipping mask to clip out the background.

Maybe that was the issue?

Dunno without the file, Sack.

Ah, come on Alfred. I did enough with the pdf I had...

Thanks for the input, since I rasterized everything before export, the file won't help y'all now. If I run into it again, I'll make sure I send the file next time. Cheers!
